The Idea of Bridges and the Image of Roads: Culture and Space
This introductory chapter describes Europeanization as not simply the immediate sublation of the nation-state into a broader and more advanced form. Europeanization retains the nation-state and yet unleashes the potential of other forms of social organization to exist in increased significance: the local, regional, global, but also the subcultural, minoritarian, ethnic, migrant, diasporic, exiled, displaced, relocated, and nongovernmental. The chapter then shows how cinema offers images for various imaginative communities. It considers questions of spatial and temporal organization in cinema as they intersect with the socioeconomic arrangements. Unlike print culture, which was bound immediately to linguistic and ethnic-national communities, film proved capable of crossing borders and appealing to divergent communities.
